My name is Ciaran Brady and I am the School Project Manager for Place2Be at Featherstone Primary.
In the past I have worked with MIND providing one-to-one counselling to adults. I have also worked with Place2Be in the Flagship school in Birmingham as VC (Volunteer Counsellor) where I would provide one-to-one therapeutic counselling sessions for children in schools (both primary and secondary groups).
Since then I have worked extensively within residential therapeutic units for children with mental health issues and emotional behavioural difficulties and gained experience working with a variety of areas such as bereavement, bullying, anger management, anxiety, depression, youth offending, substance misuse and more.
I completed my research year of my counselling training exploring people’s experiences of online gaming and have an interest in counselling, modern technologies and e-safety for children and young adults.
